LITTLE SIOUX, Iowa (AP) -

 A Nebraska man has been injured in a boating accident on the Missouri River in Iowa's Harrison County.
   The Iowa Natural Resources Department says in a news release that the accident occurred just before 8 p.m. Sunday, about four miles south of the Little Sioux boat ramp. The department says the man was sitting in the boat bow when the boat hit the wake of another vessel, causing him to fall out over the bow. The boat propeller struck the man as the boat passed over him.
   Other passengers got him back in the boat, and he was later flown to an Omaha hospital. The man was identified as 23-year-old Nathan Case, who lives in Omaha.
